Kaballah guru: gays brought on bird flu
The whack jobs just keep on coming. I thought we homos expended all our natural disaster capital on the tsunami and Katrina. We apparently had enough left over to squeeze out a little plague upon the Holy Land.
A prominent Kabbalah leader says that gays have brought a plague of bird flu on Israel.
…Rabbi David Basri, head of the Magen David Yeshiva in Jerusalem, on Tuesday lashed out at the left of center Meretz Party for running election ads supporting same-sex marriage. Israelis elect a new government this month and Meretz is the only party supporting gay marriage.
With at least two cases of deadly bird flu reported in Israel, Basri said the outbreak was God’s punishment for the promotion of same-sex marriage.
“The Bible says that God punishes depravity first through plagues against animals and then in people,” Basri said in a religious edict. In an interview with the Reuters news agency Basri’s son quoted the rabbi as saying the bird flu outbreak stemmed from the leftist pary “strengthening and encouraging homosexuality.”
Gee, What Would Madonna Do?
